I'd say that Yemen is a quite reliable ally: but not America's.
Jamal Badawi's plan killed 17 American sailors. Yemen's government
- Sentenced Badawi to death
- Commuted the sentence to 15 years
- Released Badawi, after he pledged loyalty to the Yemeni President
I try to provide links to relatively reliable sources in these posts. That won't happen this time. For one thing, I heard this little gem of Middle East justice on a news program, without an opportunity to nail down exactly where the information was coming from. For another, I can't find anything about Jamal Badawi's good news on the Web.
Finally, since I've spent more time than I should on this blog already today, I've got to quit.
